About Issa Rae

Issa Rae has nothing to be insecure about these days. From YouTube success with the series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl to the star of her own HBO show Insecure, Issa Rae is skyrocketing into success and sharing that joy with her followers every step of the way. Issa plays a version of herself as a(n awkward) black girl living in a very white LA world. Her inner monologues (often rapping alone in the bathroom) allow her to say what a lot of people are thinking. Despite her TV persona, she’s a woman of action, taking to Twitter this year in an effort to raise money for the #AltonSterlingFamily scholarship.
